Footnotes

  1. Isaiah 9:7 Or “His authority will continually expand.” The Hebrew word misrah, found only here in vv. 6 and 7, can be translated “empire, governmental authority, dominion.”
  2. Isaiah 9:7 The Hebrew word shalom can be translated “peace, prosperity, wholeness, and success.” Perhaps all of these concepts are included in the shalom Christ brings us.
  3. Isaiah 9:7 Or “intense devotion.” See 2 Cor. 11:2.
